I search a simple, easy to setup, example, which shows how to use struts in combination with a webservice.
The example should include following: - A struts action should call a controller. e.g. DBController. - A Web Service should also use methods of DBController. Not necessarly direct - if another servlet is between, it's ok. (client - servlet - DBController)
Up to now i' was not able to find a simple example. There are a lot of information about struts or webservice but not both together.

I'm not sure if article in below link answers your question but it has good explanation for Web services with Struts applications
This article suggests an architecture matching ws and struts. However I couldn't compile the example, because it needs an API (import com.tbf.xml.* from a company long gone. So, if somebody has been succesful in compiling this program, please let me know.
Why not look for a simple example that uses regular Servlets to hit a Web Service? It's the same thing.

the first thing that came to my mind when i saw the thread title was...what the heck does WS has anything to do with struts? i am echoing that through marc's comment. where and how the data is being requested/retreived/served is independent of the controller and view (struts).
